"When Okonkwo was unable to transform his clan to a Resistance Movement to fight the white man, he rallied his people to desist work and to destroy the white man's belongings.
This too did not succeed, it failed to get acceptance beyond his village. In anger and desperation, Okonkwo hanged himself- He died in disgrace much like his father Unoka!".....

  • Mental Health and Self-Injury
Self injury, also called self-harm, self-mutilation, or simply cutting, is defined as any intentional injury to one's own body. Usually, self-injury leaves marks or causes tissue damage. Self-injury can involve any of the following behaviors:

  • Cutting
  • Burning (or "branding" with hot objects)
  • Excessive body piercing or tattooing
  • Picking at skin or re-opening wounds
  • Hair-pulling (trichotillomania)
  • Head-banging
  • Hitting (with hammer or other object)
  • Bone-breaking
Most who engage in self-injury act alone rather than in groups. They also attempt to hide their behavior.

Who Is More Likely to Engage in Self-Injury?
Self-injury occurs across the spectrum; the behavior is not limited by education, age, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or religion. However, self-injury occurs more often among:
  • Adolescent females
  • People who have a history of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
  • People who have co-existing problems of substance abuse, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or eating disorders
  • Individuals who were often raised in families that discouraged expression of anger
  • Individuals who lack skills to express their emotions and lack a good social support network
